Just wanted to wish all pennant teams good luck for the second half of the season.
DIV ONE MEN
Great to see the Div one boys sitting second on the ladder going into the second half of the season. Keep the momentum going boys sitting just 3.5 points behind top team Mundaring/Get off to a good start at South Perth This weekend and this will set up a strong run home.
DIV FOUR MEN
With the Div Four team gaining confidence each week and with their teams now settling down I believe the boys can come home with a rattling run to make the finals as with Div One the Div Four boys have been playing exceptionally well in the run up to Xmas so hopefully a charge up the ladder is on the cards sitting in fourth Position just three points from third some good results will go a long way to making the finals
DIV FIVE MEN
Watch out for this team in the second half of the season sitting in sixth position at the moment only 7 points from fourth and with some new players that have joined a few more that have returned from holidays and injury these boys teams are getting stronger every game
GO THE MIGHTY QUINNS Lets all bring it on for the second half of the season

Update on the first days play in the Mens State Singles
Chris Parr our div one skipper has gone through to the second round .Well done Pablo coming from a long way behind in one game to get over the line and winning his second game comfortably. Pablo next mission is coming up this Saturday at the Doubleview Club get down there folks and give him as much support as we can and hopefully he can get to the next round.
Unfortunately all the rest of Quinn's players didn't get through but I am sure the experience gained by all players will go a long way.
